The -Salzburg KTM rider lost over two hours on Monday after a technical defect shortly before the first waypoint at kilometer 46 and fell back to the end of the 95-rider motorcycle field. Walkner is 2:15 hours behind leader Joan Barreda.
With third place, Walkner had a successful start to the desert rally. A podium or even victory now seems out of reach after the problems. After the 1st stage, Walkner’s Australian colleague Toby Price leads 23 seconds ahead of Kevin Benavides (ARG / Honda).
